Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My Comcast DTA remote (the one I got with the upgrade to digital cable with the converter box) will not change channels. All the wiring has stayed the same (I checked to make sure it was still attached) and the light on the converter box is still green, as in, it is unchanged from when I installed it. The remote will power on and off and turn the volume up or down, so it is clearly working with the television, but not the cable controls themselves. I doubt this means I need to reset the code since that was for linking the remote to the TV, which seems to be fine. I would really like to be able to change channels. Somehow it got stuck on CSPAN

How to setup Toshiba CT824 tv with digibox (I have no user manual)


Hello,

You can connect the digibox (digital converter box) or DTA to the TV using coax jumpers and tuning the TV set to channel 3 or 4 in some cases.

Connect the input (wire from the wall or floor) to the input on the digital box.

Connect the output of the digital box to the input of the TV set.

Turn on TV and digital box, tune TV to channel 3 using the TV remote or the buttons on the TV itself.

Use the digital box remote to change channels. You may need a code to program the remote to work the TV set.

I hope this helped.
Cheers!

Comcast dta remote codes for trutech klv3112


I have a Trutech 10 inch under cabinet DVD/TV and needed the codes for the new Digital Adapter that Comcast is forcing everyone to move to. The short answer is that there isn't a single code that will work for what we all need. After much research I have an answer. It's largely unsatisfactory, but its somewhat of a work around. If you use code 10451 you can get the channel up, channel down, the number pad and the "last" button to work. To get volume functional, change the volume lock on the comcast box. To do this:
1. With the TV on, manually set the volume to a medium high setting
2. With the comcast remote, press and hold SET until the red light blinks twice.
3. Enter 9-9-3 (red light blinks twice)
4. Press and release the digit 1 (red light will blink 4 times)

Now, in addition to channel control, you have volume control. I can't do anything about the power button or other functions. However, this at least makes the remote functional.

Good luck to all!

Product DMR-EH50, UNABLE TO DOWNLOAD TV GUIDE ON SCREEN SYSTEM.


I think I may have the "answer".

I am in Atlanta and have a Panasonic DVR that was working fine and sometime during the past month or so we lost the channel listings. I've tried many resets as well with negative results.

I called Comcast tonight. The agent helping me took a long time to research the issue and gave me this answer (which sounds reasonable). By the way, this is for the Atlanta area and may not be applicable to other areas of the country.

Due to delays in the conversion to broadcast digital and the fact that Comcast is experiencing bandwidth issues, they have digitized the "channel listing" signal. By mid-June Comcast's signal will be all digital and you won't be able to watch a TV connected directly to Comcast cable - regardless of whether it has digital or analog tuner (or both). This is contrary to what I'd heard before.

After mid-June, you'll either need to use a cable box OR what she called a "Digital Transmitter Adapter" (let's call it a DTA). Prior to being converted to "full" digital, you'll get notification from Comcast. She said I'd be able to get 2 DTAs at no charge (I currently have one Comcast HD DVR box). Additional DTAs would be $1.99 a month. DTAs will only provide access to the "basic" cable channels, but the good news is that the Panasonic DVR should be able to obtain its channel lineup through this DTA box.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly at richard_gladney@yahoo.com

Good Luck!

Is Audiovox VE1020 HDTV compliant?


Audiovox VE1020 is not a digital set. To see digital broadcast you will need another digital reciever or a long lead to connect to your existing one.
This set does not have very good reviews either.

Hope that helps!
